About the Conference

The National Seminar proposes to identify and deliberate upon the following factors for a meaningful reconstruction of tribal culture under the influence of change in the process in the following aspects: Ethnicity, Language, Social Structure and Organization, Habitat, Livelihoods and Traditional Health Practices.

Themes

  2. The concerns of conservation of tribal cultures in the face of external influences that have a significant impact on lesser known tribal cultures and the role of Museums.
  3. Role of Language in tribal identity and language as a cultural vehicle.
  4. Structural and Organizational changes taking place in tribal societies.
  5. The relationship between natural habitat and tribal life in the light of habitat loss.
  6. Health seeking innovative behavior as a dimension of tribal aspiration.
